Odds are, many folks that follow NASCAR have absolutely no clue who Lil B The Based God is, but one NASCAR driver does and hopefully it works to his advantage.
Erik Jones is coming off a rookie year in the Monster Energy Cup Series that saw him named Rookie of the Year for the third consecutive year in a row, in each of the three top series of the sport.
Jones shouted out rapper Lil B on Twitter after Jones received a follow from The Based God on the popular social network.
Lil B tweeted back to Jones showing respect to the young talented driver as well as the sport.
For those unfamiliar with the significance of a blessing from Lil B it can mean all the difference when it comes to success, maybe?
The most famous dealing with Lil B and a professional athlete was when basketball player Kevin Durant was cursed for disrespecting the rapper in a tweet in 2011, according to NASCAR.com. Lil B's curse was said to prevent Durant from ever winning a NBA championship. Coincidentally, the curse was lifted during the summer of 2016 and Durant went on to win a title with the Golden State Warriors the following season.
If the power of The Based God holds true, then Jones could be in for a huge season. After all, the power of Lil B is real, ask KD.
